Good Friday morning, it is February 16, 2018.

It is rainy this morning. It will continue to get really cold and really windy according to Laura Wibbenmeyer.

Temperatures will fall during the morning but will remain steady this afternoon when we might even see a few rays of sunshine. The winds will slow down by this afternoon, too.
